Hello, I am Berny
I run a Counselling and Psychotherapy practice from rooms in Manchester where I meet clients in-person. I also offer remote sessions (via Zoom) for clients who may find it difficult to travel, or who prefer not to travel into the city centre, or who live elsewhere in the UK.
My aim is to offer you a compassionate, safe, and confidential space where you can navigate those concerns or worries that have brought you into counselling.
Since 2017 when I met my first client, I am in awe of the inner strength and resilience of each client I meet as they face their challenges, and begin their journey to make the changes they need and want.
When you have looked at my website, get in touch with me for a free consultation.
Deciding to begin counselling is not always easy and you may have been considering this for some time. You’re here now, and that is the first step.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you navigate life challenges including bereavement and loss, anxiety, sadness, low mood, relationships with others and yourself, women’s health concerns, men’s health concerns, wellness, stress at work, low self-esteem… the list goes on. Counselling and psychotherapy cannot ‘fix’ the problem, but it gives you the space to work out how your concerns are affecting you what it is you need to do (and what you can do) for your own wellbeing while you find your way through your challenges.
Everyone is different and each person will have a different combination of struggles or concerns. Having a confidential, safe space to talk these through, to be heard without judgement is a powerful tool for you to access.
Email or call to arrange a free consultation to discuss your needs.
WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
As your counsellor, I will not just listen, but will hear what is happening for you with compassion and without judgement.
My modality is predominantly as a Person-centred Psychotherapist (which is a talking therapy), therefore the space is yours to talk freely about your concerns. However I recognise you as an individual and through our work together, will integrate other tools and modalities if they might prove helpful for you.
Get in touch for a free, no commitment, consultation where you can explore how counselling might be beneficial for you now.
